SUV jumps curb, plows into duplex

| Monday, May 14, 2012, 1:01 a.m.

A Greensburg area woman's sport utility vehicle made an unexpected stop Monday night against the front of a vacant residence in South Greensburg.

Patrice Gordon, 33, of 704 Casa Vita Drive, drove her Dodge Durango SLT over a curb and hit a brick duplex at 1416 Broad Ave., South Greensburg police Chief Scott Fanchalsky reported.

Gordon was not injured in the accident and no one was inside that half of the duplex, South Greensburg firefighters reported.

The vehicle was traveling south on Broad Avenue when it ran over the curb and into the building at 9:55 p.m., police reported. The collision pushed in the front wall and broke a living room window.

Firefighters cleaned up broken glass and boarded the window. No information was available on the owner of the building.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
